Koa was rescued from a shelter and learned how to help war veterans who were suffering from PTSD as a part of of Operation Heroes & Hounds.
He an amazing 5 year old male mix breed. He loves to cuddle, snuggle and be next to you. In the mornings he will greet you by doing his best impression of Frank Sinatra! He is all about tug of war and will do anything for a treat. He gives a goofy high five and if you ask him to back off he will boot scoot backwards across the room. He is the best listener and loves to give kisses.
He is great with dogs of all shapes and sizes but really needs a family where someone is always home. He is a funny, super loving dog who is very in tune with his emotions and feels very deeply. Koa would be an amazing addition to any family, whether it’s a new single parent or a home with 2&4 legged brothers and sisters. He was adopted previously and he loved his busy owner very much, but he was dropped off at daycare and was never picked up. Because he was abandoned he gets anxious if left alone, but he’s on anxiety medicine which really helps.
He is waiting to meet you at The Loved Dog, where the staff have become his surrogate family while he has been hoping you will come and let him join yours!
After all that he gave our veterans, lets help him find a loving home of his own.
